I know we all have different requirements when we're looking for a case. I recently got a used early Hoffee case for my Ellis A. For my needs it's perfect. I think it's the great incarnation of the 20s F4 case. Besides the mando, I can get a package of strings, a bunch of picks a small tuner & a tuning fork and either a strap or a clay humidifier in it. It's substantially smaller and lighter than my Calton, trimmer than a TKL or Superior & lighter. Carbon Fiber, great fit, nice minimal padding....just what I was after....modern vintage. I understand Jeff is no longer making this model, but boy is it sweet. Personally I think he hit a homerun with this one. I'm not planning on driving my car over it or checking it as baggage.....but it's a great case, nonetheless.
